On Let's clean up some meta tags there is a list of tags that look as meta-tags but after 6 years they are still "alive" (tags with <s></s> were not included):

Could we add to their tag excerpt DO NOT USE THIS TAG and a link to the above question in the tag wiki?


Tag excerpt

DO NOT USE THIS TAG : Uniform Resource Locator or Universal Resource Locator - a specific character string that constitutes a reference to an Internet resource.

It turns out that we already have tags with "do not use":

  • DO NOT USE THIS TAG: If you have a generic problem with your browser, ask it on Super User; if you have a question about how a specific browser (e.g. Chrome) interacts with a web application, use that browser's own tag.

  • DO NOT USE. Bookmarklets are no longer on-topic on Web Applications.

  • DO NOT USE as this is a meta-tag. A legal concept, enacted by most governments, giving the creator of an original work exclusive rights to it, usually for a limited time.

  • DO NOT USE as this is a meta-tag. The moving of data either between two accounts on a service or between services. Normally asked about a service's default functionality.

So I think that is fair to say, yes, we can.
